Everything Comes Next

Collected and New Poems

By Naomi Shihab Nye
Narrated by: Naomi Shihab Nye & James Patrick Cronin
Length: 3 hours 8 minutes

Everything Comes Next

“I have never heard such a profound take on an onion. And most of Nye's poems in this collection are very much the same - finding beauty and meaning in the mundane. I found myself brought to tears on multiple occasions, from happiness and sadness both. Everything Comes Next is undeniably powerful in its simplicity and gentleness. Nye does not rage; she does not need to. She states her truth, asks her questions, and allows them to speak for themselves. Striking. Hopeful. Necessary. ”
